New! Food System Racial Equity Assessment Tool: A Facilitation Guide

Lexa Dundore

Lexa Dundore, Food Systems Assistant with Dane County UW-Extension and recent Urban and Regional Planning graduate, has developed a facilitation guide and food system racial equity assessment tool for groups and organizations to look carefully at their planning and how their decision-making processes can advance racial equity in the food system.

Racial inequities in the food system create unfair differences in access to fresh and culturally appropriate foods, increase the disproportionate prevalence of diet-related diseases, create barriers to owning land and starting food or farm businesses, and limit the voice and power of those most impacted in policy-making processes.
